A two-storey, ultra-energy efficient, Schoolhaus® building.
Housing the maths department, business studies, and CEIAG (Careers, Education, Information, Advice, and Guidance) programme and enterprise initiatives – across eight brand new classrooms.
The new centre was officially declared open by local politicians; The Worshipful, the Mayor of Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, and David Tredinnick MP, Member of Parliament for Bosworth.
Redmoor Academy is an oversubscribed secondary academy which needed to expand its capacity to accommodate more pupils. The academy turned to Schoolhaus® for their solution; increasing their capacity, and allowing energy savings. Thanks to Schoolhaus®’ ultra efficient design and the solar energy generated from its roof. And their status as the UK’s most energy efficient school buildings.
With limited capital budgets for new or replacement buildings, the Schoolhaus® was funded by UK Energy Partners on a 7-year operating lease.
“I would like to thank UK Energy Partners and Net Zero Buildings who have been incredibly professional. We really appreciate the way you have worked with us, especially inviting our students to the factory and helping to get the building open on time.
We are really pleased with the building. Students and staff have been blown away by our new facilities. When you compare this to our main school building you cannot compare the technology and reduced running costs.
The quality is fantastic – as a teaching area I do not think you can better what we have here with our new build.”
– Andrew Coombs, Principal, Redmoor Academy
